Becky from Whosies & Whatnots and Patchwork Posse shares a free pattern and tutorial for making her Ribbon Bugs Stuffies. The small little bug softies have loops of ribbon for wings, and knotted ribbon for antennae. You can use the same body shape to make a ladybug or a bee. The textures and loops are fun for small hands. These would make sweet little baby gifts! Get the pattern and tutorial at Patchwork Posse.
